I Ain't Gonna Turn Her Down by Jim Jackson

I Ain't Gonna Turn Her Down - Jim Jackson,
G position, standard tuning, unknown pianist.

Die, die-die, die, die, die-die, die, die, die-die, die, die, die (scat singing)

You say you're goin' away, why didn't you say
Just when you be back again
While you gone, I hope you will stay
'Cause I got me another girlfriend

I'm really wild about her, I'm simply crazy about her
And I ain't gonna turn her down
She ain't no black gal, she ain't no high yella
She's just a sweet little teasin' brown
I met her one night, she let me take her home
She did something, mama, that you never done
She made me crazy 'bout her, just plumb fool about her
And I ain't goin' to turn her down (Spoken: All right)

Say, I'm just as wild about her, I's simply crazy about her
And I ain't gonna turn her down
She ain't no black gal and she ain't no high yella
She's just a little sweet teasin' brown
I met her one night, she let me take her home
Then she did something, mama, that you never done
I'm crazy about her, just a plumb fool about her
And I ain't goin' to turn her down

She looked so sweet, and she's just so neat
I spoke to her, I asked her name
She smiled and said, "Ida", and then she said,
"I heard of your thing."

And I'm simply wild about her, simply crazy about her
I ain't goin' to turn her down
She ain't no black gal and she ain't no high yella
She's a sweet little teasin' brown
I met her one night, she let me take her home
Then she done something, mama, that you never done
She made me crazy about her, just a plumb fool about her
I ain't goin' to turn her down
